Kwame Kilpatrick ran racket as Detroit mayor with extortion, bribery, kickbacks, jury decides
A jury decided this morning that former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick ran a criminal enterprise — complete with extortion, bribes and kickbacks — while he was the mayor of the state’s largest city. The panel convicted him and longtime contractor friend Bobby Ferguson of running a racket out of the mayor’s office for years to enrich themselves. They found the pair guilty of shakedowns and bid-rigging. In some cases, longtime friends testified they handed cash to Kilpatrick in envelopes.
Since the Detroit Press, (or any other Left Wing Media outlet). refuses to link this crook to a political party, I figured I would. He’s a DEMOCRAT!
